The Pacific Marine Energy Center (PMEC), formerly known as the Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center (NNMREC). PMEC is focused toward the acceleration of responsible development of renewable energy. Our faculty and students investigate technical, environmental, and social dimensions of ocean energy technologies, performing research that fills knowledge gaps. Through this research, students are becoming industry pioneers and educating themselves in these promising new fields. PMEC itself serves as a neutral voice of science and engineering to inform the public and decision-makers about the effects and capabilities of marine energy technologies.
